Have you tried safe mode? You can access it by hitting F8 while the computer is booting up (I tend to press it at 1 second intervals, much faster and the computer gets annoyed :P) You'll get a menu that will let you pick safe mode.

If you can get at the desktop in safe mode then i would suggest shutting off all your start up programs (the list can be accessed by going to the start menu, selecting run, typing in "msconfig" and pressing enter). After those are shut off try rebooting back into normal mode and see if that works. If it does, then you know that a program starting up with the computer is causing the problem and just need to be singled out and removed.

Good luck :)

You have tried all possible solutions and troubleshooting.

My Suggestion is to check the Warranty of the Hard Disk and get it replaced. this possible shows a mismatch between the Laptop and hard drive.

How to install win xp in toshiba portage r200 laptop


This is resolved by installing Intel Storage Manager drivers through "F6" option on XP Setup. YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK (A Drive)...as the Portege doesn't come with one...and XP does not support USB or CD ROM for this particular function.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop refuses to allow Dual Monitors


I have an A105 set up on dual screens, and it works great. As I recall, you have to do the dual screen setup in the control panel, display, settings.

I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....


Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.
